What our customers are saying

"I tore my ACL playing soccer in February and was convinced that I would be permanently hobbled without surgery. Dr. Lauren Atkins is simply the best Physical Therapist around. She is current with the literature and helped me understand that I could regain strength, balance, and function through PT. A few months later, I have almost forgotten the severity of my injury and now train with MacKenzie and Jason at GWP to get back in shape. So thankful and eternally grateful to this crew!"
"So thankful for Lauren and MacKenzie for helping me heal from an injury sustained in a car accident. The entire staff was so warm and welcoming every time I walked in the door."
"I was referred to Dr. Lauren Atkins to rehab an Ischial Tuberosity Bursitis. My initial phone call from Lauren was very productive, she asked me about my injury and my lifestyle. She was genuinely interested in my current and previous levels of activities. My first office visit I met with Lauren and MacKenzie Powell to go over my current status and put together a plan to get my injury healed and get me back to my normal activities. I am pretty athletic, running 15-20 miles per week, biking and crossfit. Since I waited so long to get help the plan was 6-8 weeks rehab once a week. My PTA MacKenzie Powell jumped right in to get me started on my recovery path. We met once a week, we did basic movement, stretching, and tissue work. After each visit she emailed me a recap of what we discussed as well as pdf's of each movement I was to work on for the next week. As I progressed the exercises got a little more challenging.I continued to work on the exercises she assigned me each week. About 5 weeks into rehab I started back to the gym. And now at the end of 9 weeks I am elated to be able to RUN again. Running is my passion, my go to full body workout.MacKenzie was always responsive to my questions, and changes at each visit. She is very personable and I am beyond happy that Lauren matched us up - she was perfect for me. She understood my desire to recover as quickly and safely as possible.I am so thankful for these 2 ladies, I would recommend them to everyone."

SOFTWAVE THERAPY

SoftWave Therapy works by sending high energetic acoustic waves to your injured area. These acoustic waves initiate your body’s own healing process on a cellular level. The result is fast relief of chronic pain and accelerated recovery. Your damaged tissues will quickly rebuild, restoring pain-free activity without drugs while avoiding more invasive treatment options. Best of all, you will recover fast with minimal to no side effects.
